As noted above, SLTK put out some pretty positive financial numbers in recent weeks.
Suffice it to say, the company reported record revenues for 2016, raking in sales of about $8.5 million. That’s up about 11% when compared to revenue of $7,713,456 in 2015.
Gross profit for the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, was $3,123,859 and $2,719,036, respectively. The gross profit increase of $404,823 or 15% was primarily due to the increase in revenue.
Incoming CEO, Dennis G. Forchic, commented “Throughout 2016, Solis Tek’s revenues reached record levels as more states embraced legalized cannabis sales, driving commercial demand for indoor lighting equipment for cannabis cultivation. In addition to securing repeat sales from existing clients, we were pleased to sign new sales agreements with leading industry players such as DNA Genetics, a cultivator of diverse cannabis strains which has won 150 plus industry awards, and GrowBlox Sciences, Inc., a pioneer in the research and development of pharmaceutical-grade, cannabinoid therapies. GrowBlox Sciences, Inc. adheres to strict regulatory and safety standards to support its clinical trials and securing them as a client highlights our credentials as the industry-leading supplier of high quality, premium lighting products for cannabis cultivation. Our reputation for developing highly differentiated lighting products supported by unique and advanced technologies was further demonstrated when we won the DOPE Industry Awards for Best Lighting Company. We expect the ongoing evolution of the legal cannabis market to mobilize a growing network of credible producers of regulated, high quality cannabis which will continue to drive demand for our diverse range of ballasts, lamps and other lighting equipment throughout 2017.”
Recent action has seen 16% tacked on to share pricing for the name in the past week. The situation may be worth watching. SLTK is a stock who’s past is littered with sudden rips. Furthermore, the company has benefitted from a jump in recent trading volume to the tune of just shy of 210% beyond its prior sustained average level.
It pays to take note of this fact with the stock trading on a float that is extremely small at just 2M shares. This type of thing is something to watch out for: with such a tight trading float, this kind of ramping interest can force a supply-shock squeeze.
At this time, carrying a capital value in the market of $50.4M, SLTK has a chunk ($276K) of cash on the books, which must be weighed relative to about $287K in total current liabilities. SLTK is pulling in trailing 12-month revenues of $8.6M. In addition, as covered above, the company is seeing solid top line growth, with y/y quarterly revenues growing at 11%.
